Abstract

A BIM Benefit Matrix is introduced as a tool to clarify advantages and to identify benefits from BIM. Methodology is based on indicators, related to a BIM functionalities and n characteristics of BIM process. The methodology was developed and tested with four follow-up indicators, one of them for design performance, during the design of a large infrastructure development project in Finland. The client made remarkable investment in implementing BIM and was interested to show the return of the investment. Objective of the study was to measure and make visible the benefits from using BIM in the studied project, and to add understanding about potential benefits and how they can be achieved. The findings suggest that BIM advantages are relatively clear and easy to formulate, but measuring benefits is challenging and time consuming effort. This paper clarifies the discussion of benefits with a framework that separates BIM advantages from measured benefits.
